BLU Touchbook G7 specifications
|Dimensions||7.76 x 4.21 x 0.35 inch|
|Colors||gold, grey, white|
|SIM type||Micro SIM|
The weight of the BLU Touchbook G7 is 10.51 oz. It is still considered to be relatively lightweight and portable. The dimensions of this BLU smartphone are average (7.76 x 4.21 x 0.35 inch).

You can use a SIM card adapter to convert a Micro or Nano SIM card into the required size.
|OS version||Android OS v5.0 (Lollipop)|
|CPU||Dual-core 1.3 GHz Cortex-A7|
The BLU Touchbook G7 comes with Android OS v5.0 (Lollipop) out of the box, but it is upgradable to the next OS. Android is an open-source operating system, which means that the source code is freely available to the public and can be modified and distributed by anyone. The BLU Touchbook G7 has Mediatek MT8312 chipset. This CPU can be fast enough for basic phone operations. The BLU Touchbook G7 comes with Mali-400 Graphics Processing Unit. The GPU is optimized for parallel processing and complex mathematical operations required for rendering and manipulating graphics. ARM Mali GPUs are considered to be a good option for mobile devices, providing a good balance of performance and power efficiency, and are widely used in many popular smartphones and tablets.
|Screen size||7 inch|
|Resolution||600 x 1024 px|
This smartphone comes with an IPS display. IPS is known for its ability to provide wide viewing angles and accurate color reproduction. IPS panels have become more energy-efficient over time, allowing for longer battery life in portable devices. The 7 inch display may make the smartphone less pocket-friendly and more challenging to use with one hand. The display size represents the diagonal distance from one corner of the screen to the opposite corner. Text will be easier to read, and videos will be more immersive on a larger display. This smartphone is multitouch capable. Multitouch is a feature in smartphones that allows for the detection and tracking of multiple touch points on the screen simultaneously. It enables users to interact with the device using more than one finger or touch input at the same time.
|Internal storage||4 GB|
|Memory card slot||microSD|
512 MB of RAM is not typically considered to be enough for a smartphone. Most smartphones today come with at least 3 GB or 4 GB of RAM, and some high-end devices have even more. Having more RAM alone does not necessarily guarantee better performance, and other factors such as the processor and storage speed can also impact overall performance. If you primarily use your smartphone for basic tasks like calling, texting, and browsing the web, 32GB may be sufficient for your needs. The Touchbook G7 has only 4 GB of internal storage. The internal storage of the Touchbook G7 (4 GB) can be expanded with a compatible microSD card. A microSD card is a type of small, removable flash memory card used to store digital information.
|Main camera||2 MP, 1600 x 1200 px|
This smartphone has only one camera on its back. If you have budget limitations or prioritize other features over a multi-camera system, this single camera setup can be a suitable choice. The camera of the Touchbook G7 has no autofocus capability. Without autofocus, it can be challenging to capture sharp and detailed images, particularly in low light conditions or when you are taking photos of moving objects. The Touchbook G7 does not have optical image stabilization (OIS). OIS technology is more commonly found in higher-end smartphones and is designed to reduce camera shake and blur, resulting in sharper and clearer images and videos.
|GSM 2G bands||850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900|
|Network coverage||2G / 3G|
|Wi-Fi||Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n|
|Headphone||3.5 mm jack|
The BLU Touchbook G7 supports 2G and 3G networks only. Compared to modern 4G and 5G networks, 3G networks are generally considered to be relatively slow. The BLU Touchbook G7 like all modern smartphones, is capable of connecting to Wi-Fi networks. Wi-Fi is a wireless networking technology that allows devices to connect to the internet or other networks wirelessly, without the need for physical cables. Wi-Fi is based on the IEEE 802.11 family of standards, which define the specifications for wireless local area networks (WLANs).
With Bluetooth connectivity, you can connect your Touchbook G7 smartphone to a wide range of Bluetooth-enabled devices, such as headphones, speakers, smartwatches, fitness trackers, and more. This phone has a built-in GPS receiver. GPS (Global Positioning System) is a satellite-based navigation system that allows you to determine your location and get directions to your desired destination. The Touchbook G7 isn't NFC (Near Field Communication) capable. NFC is not essential for basic phone functionality, but it can be useful for a variety of tasks and features.
The Touchbook G7 phone has built-in FM radio receiver. FM radio allows users to tune in to local radio stations and listen to live broadcasts, news, music, and other content. The Touchbook G7 has a microUSB port. MicroUSB is a type of USB connector that was commonly used on older smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices.

The battery is integrated into the phone's design and is not intended to be removed or replaced by the user.
Smartphones today come with a wealth of sensors to facilitate a better user experience. The accelerometer provides information about the smartphone's movement in three axes: X (horizontal), Y (vertical), and Z (depth).
